What if Dostoyevsky’s wife could give an interview?
In honor of the world-famous Russian writer’s 200th anniversary our team gave her a voice. For this new episode of our special audio series ‘I want to hear it’, Anna Dostoyevskaya, the only woman to keep her husband’s secrets, was interviewed by a well-known journalist Mikhail Kozyrev. The talk based on Anna’s diaries provides a brand new perspective on the life of the Genius: how they met and fell in love, how they ran to Europe away from the writer’s family, how Dostoyevsky adored Mendelssohn’s music and Russian bath.
You are going to discover a Dostoyevsky you have never known before, told firsthand by his closest friend, as if the two were our contemporaries, alive and speaking our language.
